Class Motto: “You are the author of your own life story.”

  • You will staple a page of “tickets” into your agenda at the beginning of each six weeks. Each teacher will place additional stamps on your ticket page as rewards for exceptional behavior, and these will be taken away for tardies, restroom or locker visits, behavior issues, etc. At the end of each six weeks, you can use your ticket page to purchase entry into our team party. (Please see the “Reward System” parent letter for more details.)
tardies restroom locker

  • You will be counted tardy if you are not in class when the bell rings. Each tardy will cost you one ticket and result in a 5-minute lunch detention.
  • You are given 3-4 minute breaks every 45 minutes of the school day so that you can go to the restroom and your locker. Class time is not to be used for locker or restroom visits. Each time you have to leave the classroom will cost you one ticket.

  • Remember that your parents/guardians can see your grades online. Grades are updated regularly, and if you do not have your work turned in, you will have ZEROS.
  • All assignments must be turned in by the end of each grading period (progress reports and report cards), meaning that if something was due BEFORE progress reports were issued, IT MAY NOT BE TURNED IN AFTER PROGRESS REPORTS.
  • The only exception to this is if you have an unexcused absence; you will be given the number of days you were out, plus one extra day to complete your assignments. For example, if you are absent two days, you will have three days to turn in the work you missed.
